Abstract

Electric vehicles require fast, economical and reliable charging systems for efficient performance. Wireless charging systems remove the hassle to plug in the device to be charged when compared with the conventional wired charging systems. Moreover, wireless charging is considered to be environment and user friendly as the wires and mechanical connectors and related infrastructure are not required. This paper reviews the methods and techniques used for wireless charging in electric vehicles. First, the general techniques for wireless power transfer are described and explained. Capacitive power transfer and inductive power transfer which are the two main types of wireless charging are compared and contrasted. Next wireless charging systems for electric vehicles are classified and discussed in depth. Both the stationary and the dynamic wireless charging systems are discussed and reviewed. In addition, a typical model and design parameters of a dynamic charging system, which is a wireless charging system for moving vehicles, are examined. Control system functions of a wireless charging system of an electric vehicle are important for an effective and efficient performance. These are also discussed in the context of better efficiency of power transfer and improved communication between the transmitter and the receiver side of a vehicle charging system. Battery is an important part of an electric vehicle as different parameters of a charging system depend upon the battery characteristics. Therefore, different battery types are compared and battery models are reviewed. Findings of this state of the art review are discussed and recommendations for future research are also provided.
